A low carb coconut flour flat bread that works with either a sweet or savoury filling. It is very flexible so can be rolled up and used in recipes such as enchiladas. Or a quick low carb pizza base too. I enjoy it as a bread with dips or filled with cheese and coleslaw.
This is an old recipe of my mine that I thought that I would revisit and update. It's rather scary how old it is and how long I have overlooked it too. So many recipes, not enough time!
It is difficult for me to put this coconut flour flatbread into a category as they can be slightly sweet due to the coconut flour, but are versatile enough to be used as a savory flat bread.
They do have a delicate coconut taste, so if you want to use them as a sandwich wrap use a filling that would compliment the coconut flavour, perhaps some shredded chicken, lemon mayonnaise and lettuce? You decide, you're the one eating it, not me. I recently had mine with some Roasted Red Pepper dip - very tasty!
The mixture of this coconut flour flatbread is fairly thick so you will need to spread it over the frying pan with a spatula as you pour it in. Be quick, be nimble and try your best to get a circle! Or be creative and quickly make a shape. If it ends up a strange shape, just confidently snap "that's what I was planning to do". I do it all the time in an assertive manner and am never questioned! Smother it with melted cheese and no-one will question you...
If you are making mayonnaise or ice cream and wondering what to do with the remaining egg whites rather than a boring egg white omelette, then whip a batch of these coconut flour flatbreads. Alternatively, if you are wondering what to do with the left over egg yolks after making this recipe you have a few options. Lemon curd is always a delicious option. Or a coconut dessert!
